Summary: 
This paper introduces a new problem of maximizing communication performance while sustaining communication connection for a specified time without battery energy depletion on wireless sensor networks. As a solution to the problem, this paper proposes a communication scheme that maximizes the transmission rates of packets from sender sensors to destination sensors while guaranteeing the given connection time. The proposed scheme is designed to work for wireless sensors with multiple radio transmission ranges.
